Ringling College of Art and Design illustration students this year took home 37 scholarships from the Society of Illustrators—more than any other art school in the country. This year’s competition saw 2,278 entries submitted by 74 participating institutions from across the country. Art students submitted their strongest, most creative and original artwork, under the guidance of professors and mentors, for selection by a jury of professional peers including illustrators and art directors. Ringling's award-winning pieces were created using a number of different mediums, including digital illustration, Z Brush and Photoshop, acrylic, gouache, scratchboard, and mixed media.
Over the last 30 years, the Society of Illustrators has awarded over $1,500,000 in scholarships to deserving students, made possible by its endowment, generous contributions from private and corporate donors, and proceeds from an annual auction of member-donated work.
